"Song To The Siren" blew me away, as much as folk song could, when I first heard This Mortal Coil's version on 4AD. Its such a beautiful song, no matter who's singing it. Even with Pat Boone's comically unnecessary pirate and seagulls introduction this particular cover still succeeds. Its from Boone's 1969 Departure LP and is considered somewhat of a collectors' find. Enjoy.
